In our vision…
… knowledge can be presented and shared easily, and as independently as possible from where you are and what device you use,
… knowledge can’t be owned and open sharing should be encouraged,
… collaboration (both individual and organizational) is the way forward.
The SkillEd vision is to connect users to high-quality information and knowledge, offering all the opportunity to learn and teach in any situation and context. We believe that SkillEd can make a great impact in sharing knowledge, mainly in areas where the people have limited possibilities to access information: There may be a lack of schools, difficulty to access the schools because of distance, or violence, limited internet availability due to the lack of a network or governmental restrictions, illiteracy etc. SkillEd aims to create the tools and the network to stimulate knowledge building and exchange, and to efficiently get the knowledge there where it is needed.
SkillEd will boost cross-learning and sharing of information. We believe that knowledge is the gateway to improving life, that it makes life-changes possible. We believe that access to knowledge and information, at the right time and in the right way, is the key to improving the chances of personal, professional and economic growth for anyone.
People should be able to share the knowledge they have so anyone can have a positive impact with what they have chosen to learn. Whether it is on a personal or communal level, about (economic) independence or sustainable living, focused on less or more advantaged people, as long as the knowledge and skills contribute to a more equal and sustainable world, SkillEd wants to make it accessible to all.
